Glitter boots: Silver & Gold Holiday Season

The Holidays are here ! I am wearing silver glitter boots, inspired by the fabulous Saint Laurent Niki boots from Fall 2017.

 I am also wearing gold brocade, with simple black skinnies to separate these hues, for a festive look this year.  A touch of teal and emerald green,  and I am as colorful as I want to be. The glitter boots are so vivid, I avoided multi color prints and color.

I am indoors, waiting for my family to come home. I have just tidied and cleaned, and my fridge is full . This shot has me looking down and that is okay. I could say I am in repose, but frankly, I am a bit lost in thought.  I liked this candid and it captures a mood, so I am sticking with it.

I am wearing a gold brocade blouse from Anthropolgie. It is several years old but remains a classic in my book.  I bought it at LVIS two years ago. It is beautifully made and lined , so I can skip wearing a bra. I love when blouses or dressed have that feature! You have seen these Willam Rast skinnies here and here . They are deep indigo with the right amount of give- not too tight, but just right.

When I saw the fabulous, but super pricey boots that slayed the runway last fall,  I was wowed. But $10, 000 boots are not something that I could, or would buy,  as much as I admire them. The Saint Laurent Niki boots were made of approximately 3,000 swarovski crystals. The diamanté slouchy boot was icy captivation!

Fast forward to last week when I found a pair in both my size and my price point! They are well made and actually comfortable,  breathing glittery glamour into virtually any outfit. You can shop them here by Stuart Weitzman,  and here at NastyGal.  Glitter boots are not for everyone, but they are really festive and look fabulous the bootie version too, and then are a bit more toned down.

I am in East Hampton for Christmas week and will share below some pretty holiday shots from this lovely town; quiet and festive this time of year.



I know this is not a typical holiday outfit. But I think you will enjoy seeing these over-the-top glitter boots. I will post a separate feature of the whole outfit soon, but I wanted to check in before Christmas and say hello.

I hope things are Merry and Bright. For those who do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you too, are enjoying this holiday season.

So fashionistas. Glitter boots? Yay or Nay? Maybe a toned down versions with the booties?  How about these from Jimmy Choo, or these fabulous booties, my favorite but also pricey ! But the black bow and point toes! Perfect! These are gorgeous too, also Jimmy Choo, but on sale. I will do a Polyvore post soon, with a broader range of price points.

Happy, Merry and, Cheers!
